WIPO Joint Master’s Degree First Semester

Some of you might know that World Intellectual Property Organization is partnering up with universities from developing countries, least developed countries (LDCs) and countries with economies in transition to support access to Intellectual Property higher education. Turin (Italy), Krakow (Poland), Sejong (Republic of Korea) are some of the places these program exists. Ankara is one of these lucky places.

I talked about this program on this blog when I was accepted and try to share my journey on Instagram to give an idea for the next generation of law graduates and people are very interested in it as it is hard to find an all-English LL.M. program in Turkey. Having successfully finished the first semester, I want to share the curriculum for those students who asked me many questions about this master’s degree.
